Title: Tryce The Sellout



Lot: The Capehart Homestead - Tryce, Michelle, and Tanu

Last Visit:
Tryce The Commentator

Hey, this is Tanu. Yep, I snuck in here to do the reporting 'cause I think my dad Tryce went completely wacko. Like man, he did something I never would have thought any good snow leopard would do. But the lure of Simoleons was too much for him I guess. Well, when I was real little, he used to tell me all about the snow leopard's home getting polluted and how they were dyin' off and stuff. He told me how my grandpa Giovanni moved his family here to get away from it after my grandma died of the poisons. So I thought, well, we would just continue the way Grandpa had everything set up, you know, living out in the open air and stuff. Then BAM my dad flipped out. If Grandpa were here today.... *shakes head*. I think becoming and
Icon and a Best Selling Author did somethin' to dad.

See, some of this happened before my birthday. Yeah, that long ago. I have been living with this nightmare for a while now. I thought maybe mom would object but she fell right into it with dad. Anyway, one day I got off the bus with my bud Woody Strickland. Man, Woody walk right over to this post sticking up out of the ground. I didn't notice it when I got on the bus that morning, so dad must have put it there while I was at school. Well before I know it, Woody is stuffing simoleons into it. $43 to be exact! I got to lookin' around, and dad had installed a hot tub, and there was strangers sittin' in it! And dad was there talkin' and laughin' like I don't know what.

I looked around some more, but there wasn't much else changed. Except mom had gotten some chairs for the poker table Grandma Calista left us. Man, there was people bowling on my bowling alley, dad soakin' in this hot tub and yakkin' it up with folks, and my mom was lookin' like quite the card shark at the poker table.

Image hosting by Photobucket

It's like, I couldn't believe what was goin' on. I tried to go on about my business. I played computer for a while, then I did my homework. It wasn't so bad, I guess. I didn't like hot tubs, and I didn't know how to play poker, but I could bowl. At least I had people around to bowl with all the time. That was kinda cool. But then I had my birthday.

There was all kinds of people around when I grew up, and some of them started complaining about it. I'm like man, give a guy a break. It seemed like mom and dad was more concerned with keeping thier 'customers' happy than having my birthday with me. But then after a while mom snapped out of it and took time from playin' poker to help me with some studyin'.

Image hosting by Photobucket

It won't be long now I will go to college. I managed to win several scholarships, so I think I am gonna get the heck outta this crazy place. But I did hear dad tellin' mom he finally made it to his life's dream...to make $100,000 simoleons. He also said his business was a level 8, what ever that means. I think my grandpa Giovanni is turning over in his grave. Granny Calista did come and look in on everything. She went around scaring people, but nobody left. Aunt Pajeria came too, and did the same thing. Hey, people can complain about a guy's birthday party, but they aren't gonna complain about gettin' scared by a ghost? That don't make sense to me.

The Robbins, Week13/The Alien Gets Abducted

Title: The Alien Gets Abducted



Lot: The Robbins Homestead - Zaed, Synclare, Jenn and Lynn

Last Visit:
Zaed's Lamentations

It is I, Jenn! A pureblood! There is only a trace of blood of the human Meadow in my viens. I am a pureblood, then. My father is the great Zaed, and he received me during a visit with our people,
who came to him to give him information about our Mission. My grandfather is Timo, who was the first Anotothian to set foot on this planet earth. What great lineage is behind me! I come from a family of giants, and I have much to live up to! This I can do! And I shall continue to birth pureblood Anotothians to this earth, to make our DNA even stronger. I shall tell you how I plan to do this, but first. I wish to relay to you other information.

Image hosting by Photobucket

It has happened to the Great Zaed, just I read in Timo's notes. I fear Zaed has completely lost his mind. He actually called his human place of employment and said he would not be coming to work on a particular evening. Zaed was not ill! He giggled in a silly human fashion whilst on the cell as if there were some big joke. I am not surprised. I still have his notes on the computer to learn from. He is still the Great Zaed to me. Now then. Before Zaed completely lost everything, he did manage to find me a mate. He has chosen another Anotothian for me. His name is Regis McClelland.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Regis is the son of Johnson McClelland. Being that his father is human, he probably does not know of the mission, but I shall teach him. Then together, we shall teach our children. (They have two bolts) If I were a human romantic, I would say how better to fall in love than under a full moon and a falling star? I think I even thought of it because of the influence of Meadow in my veins. I shall have to squish those feelings and thoughts in the future. At any rate, I became of age with little fanfare.

Now, my sister and I have been studying hard. We have been reading Timo and Zaed's notes, plus we have been studying the heavens. Not for hopes that our people would come for us, but in hopes of learning about astrology. My people had different ideas. They decided it was time for me to see other things.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Yes, they came for me. They came for me much sooner than they did Zaed. What have I done to deserve such greatness? Lynn is not predisposed to jealousy, otherwise I am sure she would have said something. But she was glad for me. I hope she too can see our people in the future.

Image hosting by Photobucket

I do know that Timo is still with us, in spirit if not in body. I sense his presence. Sometimes I think he is unhappy with Zaed. I do not know why he would feel this way; in my opinion Zaed has done an admirable job with the Mission. He has found me a mate. I do not know if he has found one for Lynn, only she is privy to that information. If he has not; then I am sure Jati will, our older brother who will be taking over the home base operations. My brother Xuan was going to do so, but I am of the understanding he has received other orders. I am under the advisement that these orders are top secret, so I know of no details.

So, Lynn and I will be leaving for the human halls of learning shortly, where we will connect with our prospective mates. Until then, this is Jenn! The pureblood!

Well, Ah decided raght away Ah still loved him an' all. Yep, jest because his head was now a home fer a chicken, didn't mean nuthin'. Well, the thang clucks ever now an' then, but Ah think Ah kin ignore thet. Chevy don' act lahk it's nuthin' at'all.....lahk it's the most natural thang in the worl' to have Miss Prissy up there lookin' a the earth from the vantage point atop his head.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Well, his momma Carla came outta her grave to see whut alla the comotion was about. Hayelle, she has been comin' around alot lately. Skeers the kids have to death. She never bothered me and Chevy's natural born kids much, but she really seems to be after our adopted kids. Yep, iffen ya'll 'member, we brought little Carla into our home. Well, she grew up real purty lahk. Chevy named her after his momma. Supposedly.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Ah got a lil' suspicious when we brought 'nother chile' into our home, an' Chevy named him Woody. Well, lemme see here. He named alla our 10 kids after the TV show Fraiser. This chere is soundin' strangely lahk the TV show Cheers.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Well, Ah reckon Ah kin live with it. It ain't lahk they have a bunch of awful soundin' names on that show. Norm, Sam, Cliff and Coach. Alright. Good old fashioned names! Strong names!

Image hosting by Photobucket

Miss Prissy disappears offen Chevy's head only when he gits ready fer bed. Ah reckon thet is a good tahm to vacate the premises. But mah goodness...the whole thang left Chevy bald! Yes....either he's gotta a chicken up thar, er he's got nuthin'. Mah Chevy lost his beautiful hedda hair.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Well, hit don' matter. Chevy is Chevy. He's still a good daddy to the kids no matter iffen he's cluckin' or talkin'. Well, ya'll know how me an' Chevy love kids. We now have over 25 grandchildren, and now we have 12 children. Soon we will have 13 children. Chevy has called to have 'nother chile' adopted into our happy family. Raght about thet tahm he or she comes to live with us, Ah think me and Chevy and the kids will move to our own place, and let Martin and Josyln take the homestead. Me and Chevy wanna git our foster home goin'. Well, Ah'll talk with ye agin. Gotta see if Miss Prissy is hungry....

Berry Nosey reporting! Folks this is the first time I have ever witnessed something like this in all my days of investigative journalism. This is the second time I have been called to the Strickland home to investigate an alien abduction. The first time it was the teenaged daughter, Gertrude who was sucked unceremoniously into the alien space ship and taken for a joyride. Ms. Strickland came back from her experience none the worse for the wear. Many residents of Prosperity Falls have been abducted by these aliens, and miraculously, the adult males come back pregnant with alien babies. The teen-agers seem to be unaffected by this happening. However, it looks like elderly males might be inflicted with a member of the poultry family implanted upon the top of their heads! If you will remember, Senior Citizen Tosca McClelland was abducted, and came back completely normal! This is really something to behold, and a strange miracle of nature to say the least. You can bet I will keep an eye on this one. This is Berry Nosey, signing off!

The Bostics, Week 13/Yasika - Mother Earth


Image hosting by Photobucket

Title: Yasika - Mother Earth



Lot: The Bostics - Andre, Yasika, Dovie, Zeon, Java Jan, Raliegh, Keykel and Keywon

Last Visit:
The Baby Market

Editor's Note: This entry marks the beginning of the 13th round in Prosperity Falls.


Yasika is here! Yes! I, who have birthed many on earth to further the mission set forth by the King of Anatoth! My body is strong and fruitful and readily accepts the seed of my earth husband, Andre Bostic. The greatest lover the earth has ever seen, and whose fertility is boundless. Our mission is to spread the DNA of the Anotothian peoples across the face of the earth until we number in the majority of the population of the planet! Where as my brother Quavi has managed to get his earth wife to carry two Anotothians at once, I too have done the same within my own womb! Yes! I had two babies at once. And, to try to multiply even more, I have suggested to my dear husband he should stargaze every night in hopes of being noticed by the Anotothians that have been impregnating the earth men with our beings. However, the earth peoples know them as Aliens. The entire mission of the Anotothians is unknown to everyone except we who are actively procreating. But, Andre has not been called to duty. So we press on. It shall be up to me, here in this house, to carry on.

I have birthed 4 sons and one daughter. My daughter Java Jan is growing quickly, and soon she will be able to birth many as I have done. I have been diligently teaching her the ways of the mission, how she will be the mother of many. Her mind is thirsty for the lessons received daily via computer from my brother Zaed from his home across town. In fact, we have two computers so my son Zeon can continue his studies as well!

My son Zeon is so handsome he will not have trouble mating with the earth woman my brother Zaed has chosen for him. It is Trudy Strickland, daughter of Fraiser and Camryn Strickland. Yes, I can see it now. Zaed will arrange for the two to meet and mate. She will become impregnated with Zeon's seed, and an new generation of Anotothains will begin!

My son Raliegh is growing as rapidly as Java Jan. His features are definetely Anotothian, and he carries the DNA inside of him, to spread over the earth. And yes, Zaed has chosen Raleigh's mate already. It will be Veronica Capehart, daughter of Vampiress Lillith Capehart and Hall of Famer Manuel Capehart. Strong DNA, there. Ahh such multiplication! *eyes glinting*

Babies Schmabies! (Dovie takes over the report) Stop yer yappin' Yasika. Well, I will be damned if I didn't get rid of that kid Chantell and more kids came pouring into this house. Yep, Yasika and Andre had two more! Twins! Gawd, I find myself constantly picking the little brats up and changin' diapers. Hey, somebody has to do it to stop all the cryin'. Some days I think I will go nuts knee deep in rugrats.

It seemed like I was the only one around much of the time to help the brats grow up. That one kid, Keykel, has the same durn yellowish eyes Java Jan and Yasika has. Gad...those eyes are the creepiest peepers I have ever seen in my life. He's got the freckles like my brother Andre. Bein' around all these kids makes me think more than ever about leavin' this joint and shackin' up with my fianceƩ Lee.

My gawd....yep...me, myself, and I....helpin' these kids to walk and to talk and to behave like nice kiddies. Seems as though Yasika always had the older ones down in the basement helpin' 'em learn how to punch the punchin' bag and how to make chocolate. *sarcastic tones* Oh yeah...those are truly things they need to know to suceed in life! *Jabbing herself in the chest with thumb* It is me! I'm the one who is teaching the little darlings how to walk and talk! I am spending more time with them than I ever did Chantell. What do I get for it? Huh? No life, that's what! I go to work all day slavin' away, then I come home to the sour smells of poopy diapers and spit up. *clicking blood red nails on tabletop* I gotta get away....need a plan....

Your'e being dramatic, Aunt Dovie. (Zeon chimes in) It ain't so bad, living in this big family. Hey, if you need a breather, just do what I do. I take off and go downtown to meet with friends and have coffee. Yeah. Hey I met Barry-James Strickland, you know, the son of ex-Mayor Kerris Strickland. Yeah. The great-grand son of one of the founders of Prosperity Falls, Landell Strickland. Hey you know what the strange thing is about Barry-James. His mother Kerris is mom's cousin. (Thinking to self) I wonder if he knows about the mission. It is great to meet relatives here. Hey, Barry-James and I have become great friends. Maybe we will sit down and talk about the mission some day.



Odd Pic Out:

Nanny began bathing one of the twins in the sink when Dovie walked away from her pancakes on the stove to get the other twin upstairs. The fireman patiently stood by whilst nanny finished bathing the babe! No one caught fire, miraculously.

Terrance And Maris Move In


Image hosting by Photobucket

Title: Terrance And Maris Move In



Lot: McClelland - Terrance, Maris and Nicholaus

Terrance and Maris Last Seen:
Univeristy, Week 12


Terrance Narrating: I finally asked Maris to be my wife when we graduated from Sim State and moved back to Prosperity Falls. Whilst in my senior year, I bought my grandparent's house from their estate. It's not terribly big, but great for a new family just starting out. It has lots of windows so we can get the feel of the outside even when we are in the house.

Now, Maris has this dream of working for the newspaper doling out advice through a column. I set up a computer and desk for her to do her work. So far she hasn't approached the editor of the Prosperity Falls Gazette to sell him on the idea. A couple of things got in the way. The biggest one being...

Maris decided to work a regular job for a while. (Her LTW is Captain Hero) I didn't understand that, but more power to her. Me, I am workin' too. Well, we are doing other things. I am also keenly interested in robotics. I bult this little gizmo that waters the flowers, then it *poof* just sort of transports itself back to its station.

Image hosting by Photobucket

It's great. Saves us from having to spend time watering the flowers, and saves us coin by not having to employ a gardner. Well, another thing that has slowed down Maris in her quest to be and advice columnist, is she got pregnant probably on our wedding night.

Image hosting by Photobucket

We had Nicholaus. Man he is the greatest little guy, but boy does he have a set of lungs! It feels great to be a dad, and Maris is totally 'all about Nicky'. But boy, does he have us wrapped around his little pinky! We are thinking of a second child, but not yet. Maris wants to work a little more, then try to get on at the paper so she can be a stay at home working mom. Sounds like a plan to me.

Since I got out of college, I met up with one of Maris' s sisters downtown. Lillith (Strickland) Capehart. I heard she had a run-in with resident Grand Vampire of Prosperity Falls. And I have seen for myself. Lillith is indeed a vampire. But that didn't stop her from remembering anything about her former life as a mortal!

Image hosting by Photobucket

Man, we had a great time talking about our college days. We even did the Secret Society handshake together. I wanted to bring her back to the house to visit with Maris and introduce her to her new nephew, but she had to get back to her own family. I found out she is building robots too, and has one that waters her plants. But she told me her hydrobot broke down. I got a couple of pointers to keep that from happening.

Image hosting by Photobucket

But man, there is one thing I gotta mention. There's this one chick, see. Lisa Rameriz. She is married to Checo Rameriz and they own a furniture store in Bluewater. Man she keeps comin' over and swooning over me. I hate that. I am afraid she is gonna cause trouble between me and Maris. Doesn't she have anything better to do?

Editor: This concludes Round/Week 12. I might do some Uni before I start round 13 the Bostic Homestead, home of Andre and Yasika. There are currently 12 kids in Uni, need to get some of that worked through! :)

Babymakers

Title: Babymakers



Lot: Strickland.4 - Bulldog, Madelyn, Jeannie, Felecia, Lia and Melissa

Last Visit:
A Coupla Pups

Bulldog narrating: I am in heaven. Hey you might not think changing poopy diapers and wiping spit up off your clothes heaven, but that is what me and Madelyn were made to do. We are parents, and lovin' every minute of it. If we don't have a baby in the house or in the makins', we are talking about it. (They are both Family Sims). And Madelyn and I were double blessed with (cheesecake) twins! Yes, Lia and Melissa were born, and Madelyn is pregnant again. I am beside myself. But I digress. Lemme show ya... *whips out wallet and a long string of pictures fall out*.

Here is our Jeannie. She is growing up to be a fine girl. She paints the most wonderful pictures for us, of course we proudly display them on the refridgerator. She has been a big help in helping us take care of her three younger sisters, love her heart. She is falling into her roll as Big Sister like nobody's business.

Look at this picture of Felicia. What a beautiful girl! She is gonna break some hearts, alright. Gawd...I am such a lucky man. I can only hope I can live up to being a good father to my girls. My Madelyn has been such a great mom... *wipes tear* how can I live up to everything? Now I know what my parents felt giving birth to ten of us....and are now adopting children since all of us are grown and gone.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Well, I guess one of the things I can do is do my best to support my wife and kids. I advanced to General in the Military. Yep, I am the top dog and answer to no one but the President. So far, he hasn't asked me to go anywhere dangerous in the world. I think I would die before I even left US soil if I had to do that. Madelyn also reached the top of her job. She is now Captian Hero. The Falls needed another one. Keep it in the family, I say. Her older sister Doris is Mayor, so they work together real well. Criminal Mastermind Zaed Robbins has been strangely quiet since my family has taken over law enforcement.

Image hosting by Photobucket

I spend my spare time looking through the telescope at the heavens. Since I was promoted to general, I no long fly for NASA. I hear my brother Fraiser went mildly crazy looking through the telescope so much, mumblin' about Aliens and such. Wanted to get taken. What is that all about? He got to the point where he wasn't making good decisions for his family, and now they are being forced to move out of their house since Fraiser has no inclination to work the farm anymore. That is all he used to talk about in college, working a farm. He let his fascination with the telescope rule his life. Well, I am not gonna let that happen to me! No sirrie! My family comes first!

Image hosting by Photobucket

Hey, looking through a telescope can't compare to what goes on inside the house. How can I deny these precious beings that have been put into my care? Here I am holding one of the twins. Which one, I couldn't tell ya. Here is a picture I took of them in their bed.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Maddy and I went out to double stock up on every thing when we found out she was carryin' two. We didn't know what was in store for us takin' care of two babies instead of one, but it has been the grandest adventure of my life. Having twins is better than any view I had ever seen from outer space. Maddy has been such a trooper through it all. Carrying two at once really taxed her body, but she whipped it right back into shape, and was able to fit back into her Captian Hero uniform in no time. She is amazing.

Image hosting by Photobucket

Well, I guess that about sums it up. Me and Madelyn are goin' all the way. Gonna fall into the footsteps of my mom and dad, Chevy and Kirstee Strickland. We want 10!

Accomplishments: TOC Bulldog - General, Madelyn - Captian Hero.
